Important conversations

I had the pleasure of working on Think About It as a research assistant before it launched and learned so much in the process. These are intelligent, urgent conversations on speech, rights, equality — the fundaments of democratic societies — and great works of literature. And if you look carefully, Uli Baer’s canon of “great books” is emphatically not comprised of the dusty tomes by European men that have for too long and arbitrarily been deemed “great” by arbiters of taste and drafters of Core Curriculum syllabi. Rather, it’s Achebe, Baldwin, Gibran, Beauvoir, Zora Neale Hurston and Maxine Hong Kingston that are offered up to us as works that have shaped contemporary liberal culture in America and around the world. Alongside BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time and Thinking Allowed podcasts, and the New Books Network’s unceasing torrent of intelligent (but poorly produced) interviews, I actively look forward to new episodes of Think About It. And I feel honoured to have played an infinitesimal part in its birth! Weiter so!

So interesting

Super interesting. So great for college students. Delve into this if you want to learn a lot and have a fun time doing it.

Super interesting and thought provoking

This is an incredibly interesting podcast with conversations that reflect a wide range of perspectives on free speech and other volatile issues. Also great talks on books.
